Tasting Notes

"You just spent less than $20 on a bottle of bourbon and your insides didn't melt from drinking it. But that's not the best part - it actually tastes good! Yeah, it's nothing fancy. You're not gonna write gushy poems about it. But it tastes like a decent sipping bourbon. It runs a little sweet and cookie-like, with some of those classic bourbony leather and spice notes in the finish. More places should use this as a quality well bourbon."
